February Vacation at The Gables: Constructing History

February 15 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until February 23, 2020

Come in out of the cold and explore how they built houses in Colonial Massachusetts at The House of the Seven Gables. What worked best? What failed? How did they learn from their mistakes?

Put on your thinking cap AND hard hat as you…
– Learn about the tools of the trade and which materials they used most.
– Experiment with different construction techniques at each of our hands-on stations using popular building toys.
– Fold and decorate your own paper house to take home.

Join us daily at 11:30 & 1:30 for “Why Do We Have Gables?” to explore which parts of historic buildings are the strongest. Kids will be making shapes with their hands and bodies in this fun, interactive program.
